In order to do that you would either need a PDF that the creator has added form fields to or you would need Acrobat Pro so you can add your own.
Even if the creator has added fields, unless it was specially enabled, you could fill it out and print it but not save it.
Ok thank you. So is Acrobat Pro a free SW or I'm guessing I'd have to purchase that?
Also, is there a way to find out if the creator has added fields to allow me to fill out the application and print, even if I can't save?
>I'm guessing I'd have to purchase that?
That would be correct.
>is there a way to find out if the creator has added fields to allow me to fill out the application and print
It will tell you if they are there when you open the file.
I'm rather frustrated. I still can not figure out how to modify this pdf file. It is a work Application! so there must be a way to modify it, they intend it to be modified. But I know nothing about Adobe Reader.
When I opened the file, it did not tell me anything about being able to modify the fields, as mentioned above.
Do you have a link to the file so we can look at it?
My guess is that it doesn't have form fields (whether they know it or not) and they intend for you to print it out and fill it in by hand.
Thanks for all your help graffiti -
Its an Airline Application, and I'd be surprised if they intended for people to fill it out by hand. But who knows. I've included the link below. THANKS!
Yes, they really expect you to fill it by hand. This form is for their
convenience, not yours! By putting it on the web, they are saving
themselves a stamp.
There are definitely no fillable fields in that application. Sorry.
Ok, well I guess that answers that. Thanks guys!
Hello. A university course expected an assignment to be completed on a pdf template downloadable from online site, a specific word count was given or penalties apply, however when edited with student content, the word count did not change. My question possibly relates to the above because I tried to edit my own work using XP pro, Vista, on 4 different computers. Is this hypotheses correct? the student should purchase the pdf writer in order to complete fields correctly. I cannot find references anywhere about word count in the knowledge base or FAQ. Original pdf was Mac OS x 10.4.11 Quartz PDFcontext (pdf version 1.6 Acrobat 7.x
Any insights/responses would be gratefully received by this student teacher who wants to know why.

What do you mean "edited". Edited how - just typing in form fields?
Where do you get the word count?
> Is this hypotheses correct? the student should purchase the pdf writer in order to complete fields correctly.
Not possible to say at this stage. (The "writer" product by the way is
called Acrobat Standard or Acrobat Professional, if it turns out you
do need it..
>I cannot find references anywhere about word count in the knowledge base or FAQ.
From my point of view, this is because it isn't something Reader does.
But clearly it does something - so... what does it do?
Question? How do you convert and adobe pdf file into a Word document?
With Reader, you can only copy/paste the content into a Word document.
Hi I am trying to print a pdf document, but whenver I print it, there is a shadow behing the letters. It is like a font effect that makes the document hard to read, since each letter has a shadow. It only happens when I print it. How can I eliminate this effect?
When I try to copy/paste a table into a Word document, all of the table cells become lines of text, one after the other down the page.
I tried creating a table in Publisher and even pasting the table in Excel, neither fared any better.
I have a multi-page document that can easily become 2 pages if I could just copy/paste the tables from two pages onto one page. I tried scaling and printing 2 UP, but that makes it tiny and leaves a big gap in the middle.
Any other suggestions?
